Nomination of BCCM/ULC collaborator Annick Wilmotte

BCCM/ULC collaborator Annick Wilmotte was nominated among 3 belgian female scientists to have her Wikipedia profile created by a group of Antarctic researchers who were making a WIKIBOMB. A WIKIBOMB is the insertion of a large number of Wikipedia profiles in one operation. The goal was to recognize the work of woman scientists in Antarctic research, to help to redress some of the gender bias prevalent throughout the encyclopedia and to provide more visible female role models for young girls interested by science. The WIKIBOMB was celebrated during the Open Science Conference of SCAR (Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
